About Eat at Lu’s

My name is Lisa Beiswenger, and this website is dedicated to exploring food in all its forms: the good, the bad, and the ugly.This project began in 2011 when I began to develop vegan and vegetarian recipes for my cooking blog.  In 2016, the project expanded into a podcast and blog where I cook recipes from the past.  While cooking, I explore the history, science, and social life of food and cooking.  

Will it Waffle: Cinnamon Buns

Usually, I wouldn’t do two “Will it Waffles” in a row, but I’m terrible at planning, so this week I’m trying to cook up some tasty cinna-waffles by putting Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in a waffle iron. Enjoy!

A few tips that I learned from subsequent attempts:
1) Grease your waffle iron before you start.
2) 5 minutes, 15 seconds seems to be the perfect amount of time.
3) Rather than looking at the top of the cinna-waffle, look at the sides. Those seem to cook last.
4) I got better results when I put the cinnamon roll slightly closer to the hinge rather than putting it in the center.
